This is my second summer using the WIHN to find convenient, safe, and spacious intern housing. I've had friendly roommates both times, which made for fun summers in D.C. The apartments are beautiful and are fully furnished. The location is great, as I was able to walk to my internship on Capitol Hill in under 15 minutes. Union Station is also a short walk away, as well as Giant supermarket.
Loved this place. Always prompt with any requests. Great location, always felt safe.
The apartment was spacious and comfortable, the kitchen has all the furnishings for home cooking and the living room is nice and modern. The WHIN network was easy to apply to and they posted events for all members to meet and hang out. The housing is in an ideal location next to the Capitol with plenty of nearby shops and stores.
My daughter Emma has just returned from her summer in DC, staying in WIHN accommodations at Senate Square. Moving her into a nice, clean, furnished apartment was so comforting as we were leaving her in a new city for the summer. The WIHN staff was so friendly and responsive throughout her stay, and she felt safe the whole summer. Swimming at the rooftop pool was one of her summer favorites and her walk to work on Capitol Hill was a breeze each day. She was so happy with her decision to stay here, and as parents so were we.
Due to the fact that we were in an unfamiliar city, the search for safe, affordable housing for our daughter’s Washington, DC, internship was daunting.
We initially bypassed WIHN because it seemed pricey for our budget but circled back to it after other options were exhausted.
The WIHN staff patiently answered our many questions and made themselves readily available.
Abby lived on the fourth floor in Senate Square along with 7 other female interns (all approx. her age) in a 3 BR, 2.5 BTH apartment. There was some trepidation about the potential dynamics in such a living situation, but we were pleasantly surprised when, not only did everyone get along, but several of the young ladies became fast friends with our daughter.
The apartment itself was spacious and tastefully decorated, clean and light, and included a washer and dryer 😊. The building was quite secure and contained a gym and lovely rooftop pool and grill area where Abby and her friends spent many evenings.
Many young families and dog owners resided in the building, yet the vibe was professional and clean.
A Giant grocery store was located across the street from Senate Square, and many restaurants were within walking distance. Abby worked on Capitol Hill and was able to walk to the Hart building and, from there, take the employee transport to her office. She was within walking distance of Union Station when using the metro or train, and at night, she took an Uber. She did not need her car.
Looking back on the experience at Senate Square, we feel the money spent was a great investment toward launching our daughter into her career. She now has a job on the Hill, and one of the first places we are looking for her housing...is Senate Square!
